They just can't bring themselves around to tell us the truth! News has been breaking that Nelson Mandela actually died way back in June but for reasons better known to the South Africans they decided to pretend that he was still alive.
Perhaps too many people actually knew that he was dead to promote the myth of his survival further. This where I got it from and 'The Tap' is also reporting it. So it has been out in the open for some time but nowhere have I heard it reported within the corporation controlled media.
The BBC at lunch time was still burbling on about the queues of people lining up to view the body. I believe that if something like this has occurred, for whatever reason, the media has a duty to investigate the reason.
I am rapidly coming to the conclusion that we should throw away the newspaper (apart from the football reports) and seek the truth from the Blogosphere. I have therefore done something that I should have done years ago. I have updated the list of the blogs that I visit most often. Most of them are in some way or other trying to inform you about what is happening in the world.
Add them all together and there are plenty more and you have the beginnings of a truth seeking exercise. I apologise that my lack of IT skills do not put you directly through to the blogs but Google Chrome in every case has found the right one. I shall be working on this.
After seeing the spectacle of the three state heads playfully taking 'selfies' at a state funeral I have decided from now on to dispense with titles like President and Prime Minister and call them all Corporate Heads of State because they sure have lost the right to represent me. The only thing about that funeral that rang true was the beautiful sound of the South African leader being roundly booed by his own people. Even the corporate media could not drown that out!
